"Couldn't wait to get going, but wasn't quite ready to leave"

As I sit here in the Seattle-Tacoma airport waiting to board the final leg of my journey to California I can't help but look back on the past eighteen years of my life. Everything that I have ever known, I left when I stepped on the plane. The security of home, the privacy of a room that I was blessed to call my own, the stability of routine. Shattered... But not in a bad way. I am starting a new stage of life. And soon, this new life will be the norm. Every relationship, everything I have ever known is changing, but God has a plan in it all. So through it all I can feel peace. God is my stability. When everything else is changing, He is not. Knowing that, eliminates any feelings of restlessness, any doubts, any worries. I am His child and I am in His hands. And that, my friends, is a beautiful thought. For I know the plans I have for you," declares the LORD, "plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.- Jeremiah 29:11
